Agricultural Risk Assessment Study in Uganda

Abstract:

Agriculture is still the mainstay of the Ugandan population. The sector contributes 22.5% to GDP (in 2013/14), 54% to exports (in 2014) and 70% to employment (in 2014). Yet the growth rate of the sector is below average GDP growth. The low growth rate can be attributed to the diversity of risks that affect the sector’s productivity.

 

This Risk Assessment Study (RAS) report presents a comprehensive mapping and assessment of agricultural risks in Uganda through a holistic approach. Drawing on discussions with different stakeholder groups, the report provides information on the priority risks and impacts as well as the existing policies and tools to improve agricultural risk management (ARM) in the country.
